The Ondo state government has chosen to follow closely the footsteps of Lagos State, by reviewing its land use charge in the state.
The state said there would be an amnesty for those who have not been paying, but implementation would commence as soon as inputs were received from those concerned.
The Lagos State government has been at loggerheads with residents over an increase in land use charges in the state. After several protests and marches, the Akinwumi Ambode-led government soft-pedalled and reduced the charges. However, activists insist only a reversal would suffice.
The Ondo State Government is however, treading with caution, choosing to hold meetings with property owners before introducing the new law.
